Some chance shots of
MER Car No 20 at Dhoon Glen halt. I was actually about to start on
a walk down to the beach when I heard the tram approaching
and waited for it to
arrive before continuing my walk.
The last day of scheduled
services for 2023 on the Isle of Man railways. In the morning I concentrated
on the steam railway between Douglas and Castletown stations.
In the afternoon I went
to get some pictures on the Manx Electric Railway.
2/12/23 & 3/12/23
The first two days of
The Shed cafe's 'Little Festival Shedanigans' events that are running each
weekend until the 23rd December (all sold out I'm afraid!). In conjunction
with the Manx Electric Railway, tramd run from Laxey to the Dhoon Glen,
where the Little Shed Cafe provides refreshments and entertainments for
adults and kids.
I also shot two
videos, the first one was on the Saturday event and from ground level.
The second was on Sunday and just an aerial view of the two trams passing
near the line summit above Bulgam Bay. There's no sound on the second
one unfortunately, as I forgot to turn on the separate audio recorder!

The Steam Railway has
been running a series of 'Polar Express' trains this month, running between
Douglas and Santon and I managed to catch up with one on the last day of
it's operation. The main aim was to shoot some video of the operation,
but I also included some still shots.
